Staff members of the DIW Berlin will, for the most part, have the possibility to work externally. All staff can still be reached via email as well as the usual landline and mobile telephone numbers. For media representatives the staff from our press office can also be contacted via the central email address presse@diw.de.

All scheduled internal and external events within the DIW Berlin, Mohrenstraße 58, will, for the time being, no longer take place. Individual smaller video and telephone conference opportunities may still take place. Should this be the case, the person responsible for the appointment will contact you directly.

Through the measures that are being implemented restrictions and temporal delays in the handling of internal or external matters may occur; we hope, however, to thus slow down the spread of the virus whilst remaining as active as possible.

We are happy to answer any questions you may have.

We will inform you on our website if there are changes due to current developments.

Joint Economic Forecast: Recovery Loses Momentum - Economy and Politics Still Shaped by the Pandemic http://www.diw.de/sixcms/detail.php?id=diw_01.c.800675.en ]]> Wed, 14 Oct 2020 10:00:00 +0200 http://www.diw.de/sixcms/detail.php?id=diw_01.c.800675.en Kevin Ducbao Tran has successfully defefended his dissertation http://www.diw.de/sixcms/detail.php?id=diw_01.c.799994.en ]]> Thu, 01 Oct 2020 01:52:00 +0200 http://www.diw.de/sixcms/detail.php?id=diw_01.c.799994.en New Vierteljahrshefte zur Wirtschaftsforschung (Quarterly Journal of Economic Research) about Development Banks online http://www.diw.de/sixcms/detail.php?id=diw_01.c.799921.en ]]> Thu, 01 Oct 2020 12:39:00 +0200 http://www.diw.de/sixcms/detail.php?id=diw_01.c.799921.en US and EU secure vaccine production on home soil http://www.diw.de/sixcms/detail.php?id=diw_01.c.798787.en The deployment of a safe and effective vaccine for Covid-19 will be central to lifting containment measures. In a bid to speed up vaccine deployment, governments are entering into ‘Advance Purchase Agreements’ (APAs) with vaccine companies to secure access to vaccine doses. We document and compare the vaccine procurement strategies of the US and the EU. Most notably, we find that both the US and the EU only secure vaccine doses from developers whose (contracted) production facilities are based in US or EU territory, respectively. Securing vaccine production on home soil is crucial in a crisis because of the ability of governments to implement export restrictions; vaccines produced in a different jurisdiction may be blocked from exiting the region. Thus, only governments who can secure local production will be able to provide a vaccine quickly.

However, natural gas has no climate benefit compared to coal. What is more, Europe risks to become a battleground for the conflict between Russia and the United States. The construction of the Baltic Sea pipeline Nordstream 2 has set in motion a downward spiral of sanctions and counter-sanctions. US liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports compete with Russian gas exports to Europe. While German and European policy makers debate about an appropriate reaction to the US sanctions, we ask which role will US LNG be able to play in the European natural gas market. Model results by DIW Berlin provide first answers. In the long run, however, the European climate policy commitments will lead to a phase-out of fossil natural gas in the wake of the energy transition in the next decades.
